How to Join
Why Greek Life?
A fraternity is tied together by friendship, brotherhood, and common goals and aspirations. The members share friendships, efforts, and knowledge; they learn and grow together which develops strong and creative leadership skills and success.
Joining a fraternity in general offers incredible social and leadership skills and opportunities, and lifelong friendships. We encourage you to explore your Greek Life options at Iowa State and determine what characteristics you are looking for in a fraternity. Please consider signing up for the Greek Getaway, hosted by Iowa State’s Office of Greek Affairs, to experience a taste of what the Greek Community can offer at Iowa State.
Why Delta Upsilon?
Delta Upsilon is the premier men’s fraternity committed to Building Better Men for a global society through service, leadership development, and lifelong personal growth of our diverse membership. Our four founding principles, the promotion of friendship, the development of character, the diffusion of liberal culture, and the advancement of justice, challenge our brothers to expect nothing less than excellence from themselves and others in the shared pursuit of justice.

With the values of our organization in mind, the one thing that distinguishes our chapter from other fraternities on campus is our diversity and our openness to the community that attracts a diverse brotherhood of individuals from all walks of life. Our fraternity is not catered to one athletic team or academic focus like some others. As such, I would describe our members as active members in a wide range of academic, athletic, and extracurricular activities who seek to have an interesting and exciting social life apart from the academic rigor at Iowa State.
